    Question for those here:
    What was/were your favourite X-Eras?

    As you can probably tell from my pics...I loved Claremont's 80's/90's era the most. Spanning The Brood Saga right into Genosha/Outback and including his definitive New Mutants, the Simonson's X-Factor, Excalibur and Generation X.

    I loved that while all the books were separate in tone and premise they were cohesive and felt all in the same universe/world/moment (thanks in large to Claremont). I loved that Storytelling across the board was very consistent. And visually, they were illustrated by the now considered "masters" of the field.
    I loved that they didn't take themselves too seriously, that they delivered pure high-fantasy escapism without trying to mimic real-world/moralistic sensibilities.
    I loved that they were character-driven stories rather than Story-driven characters.

    My top four runs (sort of top two eras):

    All-New by Claremont/Cockrum; Uncanny by Claremont/Byrne
    New by Morrison/Quitely/etc; Astonishing by Whedon/Cassaday

    Kind of interesting how the two most revolutionary periods in X-Men history began with runs that were cover titled "all-new" or "new", and then each were followed up by runs beginning with powerful adjectives (Uncanny, Astonishing). No doubt Morrison had "All-New, All-Different X-Men" in mind when naming his own series.

    I also love the Claremont/Smith stuff, Claremont/Romita Jr. stuff, the First Class comics by Jeff Parker and friends, Adams/Thomas, Kirby/Lee, the whole era from Messiah CompleX to AvX Consequences...lots to love!

    (And that's just for X-Men - Sienkiewicz/Claremont New Mutants...PAD's X-Factor...X-Statix...Uncanny X-Force...Weapon X by BWS...all great)

    I strongly agree, especially the bold.

    I loved Excalibur up to the point they wrote Rachel out (sob) and then it just wasn't the same without Rachel. I know I first started collecting around the time that Excalibur #1 came out and I traced back to get issues where Kitty and Rachel had appeared previous to this. Excalibur was definitely the starting point of me collecting comics.

    Excalibur was arguably Rachel's best showing...ever.
